Excellent donuts and lots of varieties including some Danish rolls here. The days and hours change often, but the sign said open Tues-Sat. The earlier you arrive the better the selection. Friendly folks, and OK coffee. There is counter space if you want to eat in. The baked goods are always fresh.

Best place in town for your sweet tooth. We went in and spent less than $10 for 2 full sacks of fresh donuts. You COULD go to a chain store and spend $10 for 3 donuts, but why??

Really good donuts and goodies (rolls, twists, long johns, fritters, chesse and other danish). Coffee is not what you come here for. Bring cash and plan to wait in line on Saturday mornings.

So I've tried fritters at every donut place that offers them. Poppy's is my favorite. Not only are they the perfect thickness, but have the right amount of flavor as well. Oh, and if you want one with maple on top, they offer those as well.

Wonderful stop for great fresh donuts and very friendly start to the day. The variety and fresh cooked aromas plus the 50's style counter seating are truly Americana of bygone days.

You must try Poppy's. They have great donuts AND it is a local Independence business. The staff at the store are genuine and friendly. Note - they do only take cash.

Hi priced for the quality I received and they only take cash....period. I found that the pastries offered at places like Price Chopper or HyVee were not only better but much more inexpensive. The only this place has going for it is there location. It's far from major markets.

The donuts are always fresh and tasty! They have a very wide variety as well. Every time that I have been in there ( which is quite often) they have been pleasant and quick. My family really enjoys going in to pick out their favorites. I highly recommend Poppy's if you are a donut lover!!
